"Alguien", with no accent.

I can't grammatically explain why, but I would say:

- Queremos encontrar a alguien que pueda ayudarnos.


- Queremos encontrar una persona que pueda ayudarnos.

It seems "alguien" is more specific than "una persona" ("alguien" doesn't accept an indefinite article).
Ain't it wonderful to be alive when the Rock'n'Roll plays...
